Victoria grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast where she got to enjoy the swampy marshes of the Pascagoula and Escatawpa Rivers as well as the salty Mississippi Sound. As her family swears, she could swim before she could walk, and she later became a lifeguard and swim instructor. In May of 2020, she graduated cum laude from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a B.S. in Public Health. She also earned a minor in Chemistry and Distinguished Honors for completing the personalized honors college pathway. While in undergrad, she developed a passion for preserving our natural resources and a belief in the power of volunteerism and service. Through UAB Service-Learning, she volunteered with the Coosa Riverkeeper in the fall of 2019 and began fostering a love for the Coosa River.
She returns to us now as the Fish Guide Coordinator and will be conducting the 2020 Fish Guide Program! Victoria feels most at home on the water and can’t wait until she is as familiar with the Coosa River as the waterways she was raised on. She is happiest when enjoying the water with friends or teaching others how to safely enjoy the water.
